    I was sorry it was my duty... Anyways isotopes of an element always have same atomic no.. Hence same no. Of protons... But they have different mass and hence their no. Of neutrons will be different

    In simpler words... Isotopes are those elements which have same atomic number and different atomic mass

    Hmm so that would mean the same element to

    because wouldnt the different number be an electron

    So ur saying that the no. Of electrons also differ?

    no. I saying I thought that Isotopes of the same element differ in the number of electrons

    We take a case of neutral atom here... The no. If protons is equal to the no of electrons. I'm reminding u once more.... Neutral atom

    So only the no. Of neurons differ right?

    Okai let's take 2 isotopes of carbon \[C ^{14}_{6} and C ^{12}_{6}\] So here we can see the atomic number remains same. That is 6! Atomic number shows us the no. of electrons or protons right? But we can see the atomic mass is different ! atomic muss contains the summation of both neutrons and protons. We know no. of protons and electrons in both isotopes are the same ! Then the difference in atomic mass is due to the change in no . of neurons right ?
